I like this best of the recordings of this show so far. The bass is extremely heavy, but without distorting or drowning out the other frequencies at all. Sounds like the Phil Zone! Awesome show too; somewhat more understated than others, but a killer performance nonetheless.

Subject: The source to beat
This is the best source IMO. Very nice mix. Da Weez comes through again. A difficult venue to get a good pull from. The crowd energy is icing on the cake. VA in Oct. is hard to beat.

Great little first set, and a poke in the ribs with DJ to open set II. Then after the first verse of Playin' we depart to outer space. Listen to the crowd as they start the jam. Then a James Bond riff towards the end. Blown lyrics? Who cares? The feeling and 'out there' more than makes up for it and he said he tried. You have got to love these wooden spaces with the long Garcia jams and whale Bobby too. Long noodling intros into Truckin like this are also nice if they must. Explosive transition into Spoonful, which drifts effortlessly into a heartfelt Wharf Rat that is about as close to perfection as I want to get. Not sure what happens to Sugar mag, but not much of a choice there anyway. Cooler heads prevail! 6:05 +- "Just look at the world today. What can anybody say? It's fucked." You tell 'em Bobby.

I also like the little intro into US Blues. That really gives you some insight into the way they just expected us to be following them around. No feeling like knowing you had just seen a smoker and still had more to go. No cell phones; no internet just miles of Hwy and days in the parking lot.

Damn, we miss you Jer.

Should really be 5*, but I am trying to hold those more in reserve. This has to be in the top 5 for '83.
